Check your interconnection cables-check volume control not in low level-no mute button or switch is pressed-check your input selector for right selection.-if you have speaker button confirm it is pressed.

Peavey DPC1400x turns on, plays sound for a split second, buzzes, then goes silent. All lights show green though. What could this be?

This sounds like a power supply capacitor leaking causing a dc bias problem and amp protection shuts it down.

Turn volumne up over half red light comes on flashing an no sound . I have to turn ampoff then back on . this will reset it but I still can't turn it over 1/2 volumne. Thanks Gerald

It's going into "safe" mode. Basically you're overdriving your speakers and amp is sensing it. Check for proper him rating at speakers vs output rating of amp. If they match up, then one of your speakers is causing the issue.

Hi, my arcam alpha 7r turns on fine (orange light turns green) when you try and up the volume it clicks out and green goes back to orange, and the rear right hand side gets far too warm. thanks for any...

You may have problems with one of your speakers,or with the wires that go to the speakers.
Try turning it on with no load, remove ALL the speaker wires and up the volume and see what it does.....If the amp does the same with the spakers removed ,it means that the amp is faulty,
if nothing goes wrong connect the speaker one by one until it fails and you will find out which speaker is faulty, Also check the impedance on the spakers to be the same asthe impedance recomended for that amp (If u connected two or more speakers per chanel have in mind that if u put them in parallel the impedance goes down two 8 ohms speakers equal one of 4 ohms)... ,you may be overloading the amp

I have a Sonamp 260 MKII. The red light is on but the green light does not come on. I've unhooked all speaker wires and input wires. Now what?

The red light will stay on without speakers connected.

Make sure your speakers are good and try again

If it still fails then there's a power supply failure internally

No sound from cenre and rear speakers

Is there an output section for the speakers on the back of the receiver? if so, make sure to properly install the speaker wires into the correct connectors. It should be the same as for the front speakers. If not, then you will not be able to install center and rear speakers.

Make sure there is nothing wrong with the speakers, or the wires them selves. If you are positive that everything is installed correctly, try using a new batch of speaker wire. If the speaker wire is pre-installed or already attached to the speaker from the factory, you might have to call and report a faulty product or try to find the break in the wire yourself. To make sure the speakers are working properly, be sure to plug them into the same connector as the front speakers to see if they receive the signal. if noise comes out of them when plugged into the front slots, then the speakers themselves are fine, and it is an issue with the wires or the unit itself.

Last, if it is not the speaker, or the wires, then you will have to remove the cover from the receiver or remove the wire inputs from the back of the receiver and make sure there is no connectivity problems with them. There might be a frayed wire, or a wire that has come loose, or a soldering issue. If so, you can try to tackle it yourself, or you might have to bring it into a repair shop, or call Sony.

Hope this helps at all. :D

Last, if you have tried new wires,

Setting up my bands new pa!!!

You can work forwards from the mic to the speakers, or backwards from the speakers back to the mic.
The mixer and the amp both should have lights to indicate when there is signal present -- if you don't have lights at the mixer, then you won't have any sound downstream at the speakers. In this case, the problem is with the mixer or the sound source (mic or instrument)

If you *do* have lights at the amp, then the signal is getting that far, and the problem must be with the amp or the speakers.

Pioneer VSX-516-S/K amplifier - loss of sound in speakers

This sounds like the amp has a system memory problem. The chips inside your amp that deal with it might be faulty or they loose the information due to a power loss, often caused by memory retention capacitors.
You can tell that to the repair man and see what he says, but personal I would go to another, try contacting Pioneer for a recommended engineer in your area.

Your no doubt finding the speaker safety/turn on surge protect relay NOT engaging a few seconds after turning it on-right? Check the output transistors. These are the big green and black ones screwed to the heatsink. You gain access to them by taking off the bottom cover. There's 4 per channel--2 green and 2 black. You'll probably find one or more of them shorted. If you find replacements, put them in exactly as the originals with new thermal grease/heatsink compound. Unsolder and lift the center pin (collector) on each of the four transistors of the effected channel. Power it up and check across the outside pins of each device for proper bias-about a half a volt or so on each one. If the voltage is much higher, or not there you've got other problems that will require more diagnostic/troubleshooting. Do all the lights on the front panel work-or just the tape monitor indicators? If just the tape monitors light up, check resistors RN83 and RN84 on main board under the speaker connector board-remove the speaker connector board to get at them. These are bad on mine and I've yet to replace them. I believe these to be 920 ohm 1% precision resistors....

This is not a reset. Most likely one or more transistors have shorted and need to be replaced. Does the front display come on OK?

No sound

Make sure speakers are hooked to proper connectors. Also check speaker switch "A"/ "B"/ "A+B" is positioned to correct speakers.
Also make sure mute switch is off
